Perfection! They really aren't any more complicated to make than Snickerdoodles-- just 2 extra steps in making an indentation and adding the filling. I rolled them out to 1" balls and used an ice-cream scoop handle to make the indentation, before and after baking. We made a variety for a school party, using white chocolate chips w/candy canes or a single chocolate chip in the center, chocolate chips w/cherries, peanut butter & chocolate chips (swirled w/ a toothpick when melted)-- combinations are endless. They looked wonderful & festive and went fast! These cookies hold their shape very well and are perfect to make ahead and freeze. They don't crumble and aren't overly soft. (Be sure to use butter, not margarine!) The cinnamon isn't overwhelming, just a perfect hint that adds to the interest of the flavors. It could be omitted if ones desires. I'll be making these every year!
